Survivors In The Classroom

CHAI is committed to bringing the stories of Holocaust survivors to life here in Rochester and throughout New York. Our Survivors in the Classroom program is an essential part of that mission, bringing young community members from 6th grade through college face-to-face with those who were there.

We work with educators and local groups to match classrooms, schools, and programs with survivors and their family members to create impactful and meaningful educational experiences.

Please reach out to CHAI to arrange to have one of our speakers share their story with your group in person or through a live video chat.

Ways to Give

Every day, we work to provide compassionate, strategic, and comprehensive support, no matter the situation. There is no organization better positioned to do this than the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester.
